My dad did his national service in the parachute regiment and jumped out of one of these numerous times, although he always said he couldn't understand why anyone would want to jump out of a perfectly good aircraft.

Great to see these antiques still flying. I remember cycling to see BEA Dakotas landing at Nutts Corner near Belfast . . . in the days when Vicounts were high-tach!
